Both trolling and shore fishing are excellent. Sunrise may get a bit breezy because it doesn't have the wooded areas to break the wind. This lake is open all year. Campgrounds, stores, gas stations and boat rentals are available at Sunrise Lake. To get to Sunrise Lake from Show Low: Start out going northwest on AZ-260, turn right on Sunrise Cutoff.
